No filters selected

The filters you have selected from various query interfaces will be stored here, in the 'Filter Cart'. The database will be queried using filters added to your 'Filter Cart', when multiple filters are defined, each will be executed using 'AND' logic, so with each filter that is applied the result set gets smaller.

From the 'Filter Cart' you can inspect each of the filters that have been defined, and you also have the option to remove filters. The 'Filter Cart' itself will display the number of filters applied along with the number of subjects that are identified by the combination of those filters. For example a GUID filter with two subjects, followed by a GUID filter for just one of those subjects would return only data for the subject that is in both GUID filters.

If you have a question about the filter cart, or underlying filters please contact the help desk at The NDA Help Desk

Associated Studies

Studies that have been defined using data from a Collection are important criteria to determine the value of data shared. The number of subjects column displays the counts from this Collection that are included in a Study, out of the total number of subjects in that study. The Data Use column represents whether or not the study is a primary analysis of the data or a secondary analysis. State indicates whether the study is private or shared with the research community.

Study NameAbstractCollection/Study SubjectsData UsageState
Unravelling the Collective Diagnostic Power Behind the Features in the Autism Diagnostic Observation ScheduleBackground: Autism is a group of heterogeneous disorders defined by deficits in social interaction and communication. Typically, diagnosis depends on the results of a behavioural examination called the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS). Unfortunately, administration of the ADOS exam is time-consuming and requires a significant amount of expert intervention, leading to delays in diagnosis and access to early intervention programs. The diagnostic power of each feature in the ADOS exam is currently unknown. Our hypothesis is that certain features could be removed from the exam without a significant reduction in diagnostic accuracy, sensitivity or specificity. Objective: Determine the smallest subset of predictive features in ADOS module-1 (an exam variant for patients with minimal verbal skills). Methodology: ADOS module-1 datasets were acquired from the Autism Genetic Resource Exchange and the National Database for Autism Research. The datasets contained 2572 samples with the following labels: autism (1763), autism spectrum (513), and non-autism (296). The datasets were used as input to 4 different cost-sensitive classifiers in Weka (functional trees, LADTree, logistic model trees, and PART). For each classifier, a 10-fold cross validation was preformed and the number of predictive features, accuracy, sensitivity, and specificity was recorded. Results & Conclusion: Each classifier resulted in a reduction of the number of ADOS features required for autism diagnosis. The LADtree classifier was able to obtain the largest reduction, utilizing only 10 of 29 ADOS module-1 features (96.8% accuracy, 96.9% sensitivity, and 95.9% specificity). Overall, these results are a step towards a more efficient behavioural exam for autism diagnosis. 318/2172Secondary AnalysisShared
Data-Driven Generation of Synthetic Behavioral Feature Vectors Modeling Children with Autism Spectrum DisordersBehavioral data on children with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are available thanks to standardized diagnostic tools, such as the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule (ADOS). This data can be of great use to enhance the learning and reasoning of agents interacting with children with ASD. However, the amount of such available data is limited and may not prove useful by itself to inform the algorithms of complex agents. To address this data scarcity problem, we present a method for generating synthetic behavioral data in the form of feature vectors characterizing a wide range of children with ASD. Our method relies on a thorough analysis and partition of the feature space based on a real dataset containing the ADOS scores of 279 children. We first analyze the real dataset using dimensionality reduction techniques, then introduce data-driven descriptors that partition the feature space into regions naturally arising from the data. We end by presenting a descriptor-based sampling method to generate synthetic feature vectors that successfully preserves the correlation structure of the real dataset.1/207Secondary AnalysisShared
